Top 10 Ancient Generals
1Julius Caesar (Rome, Republic)

I'm genuinely in awe of most of Caesar's victories, espically those in the civil war. (The Gallic Wars are impressive as well, though it's mostly agreed that they were unnecessary and simply a tool for Caesar's political designs)
2Alexander The Great (Macedon)

Most will have Alexander as the goat, but what gives Caesar the edge is the level of competition. Alexander fought mostly against an impotent Persia (Xenophon's march had made it clear to the Greeks some 70 years prior that the great Persian empire was mostly a mirage)
3Hannibal Barca (Carthage)

Perhaps the most intensely brilliant tactician of all time, Hannibal's wins at Trebia, Trasimene, and Cannae represent the single three most crushing string of victories in ancient history. Trasimene and Cannae are such complete and absolute victories it's hard to express in words how impressive they are. Hannibal deserves to be censured, though, for not marching on Rome immediately after Cannae.
4Cyrus The Great (Persia)

4-10 are pretty much interchangeable, and I wouldn't quarrel too much with anyone who would rearrange these next names into whatever order. I'll give Cyrus the 4 spot because he was basically the alexander of his time.
5Gaius Marius (Rome, Republic))

Saved Rome from the Gauls.
6Scipio Africanus (Rome, Republic))

Saved Rome from Hannibal
7Tiglath-Pilester III (Neo-Assyria)

Established the first standing army in history I believe.
8Aurlian (Rome, Empire)

The only A.D. general to make the list. Had it not been for Aurelian's victories in Gaul and Palymrya, the Roman empire would have fallen 200 years before it actually did.
9Marcus Claudius Marcellus (Rome, Republic)

Highly underrated.
10Pyrrhus (Epirus)

is somewhat overrated. usually falls higher on top 10 lists, but im not sure why. Nevertheless, Pyrrhus was a true man's man, none of that let's form into highly sohpisticated battle lines stuff, let's just fight mano e mano. kinda romantic
11Honorble Mentions

Epiminondas, Themistocles
